​Courtois: Chelsea will show their fighting qualities against Porto

Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois has revealed the players were left upset following their eighth Premier League defeat of the season at the weekend to Bournemouth, but insists they will now regroup and show their strength when they host Porto in the Champions League.

"Of course we are upset, but we have to regroup again and show strength against Porto in the Champions League and next Monday at Leicester," Courtois told Chelsea's official website.

"It's an important week for us. On Wednesday we have to win to make sure we are first and qualified. That will be a big boost for the team as well.

"Then Leicester away is a difficult game. We knew last year it was not easy there and now they have the confidence and are playing really well. It will be a very tough game but we are confident we can push on there."
